Kana thought her life couldn't get any worse - she was consistently behind on her schoolwork, she had no luck with the boys, and she was the only one of her friends who hadn't "blossomed" yet. When the new boy in class conjures up a portal in the girl's shower, she is transported to the magical world of Sokora - wearing nothing but a small cotton robe. Now, on top of landi ...more

It is rare that I find characters that I loathe this much, but I find myself boiling in revulsion.

Die noch recht gute Wertung hat der Manga eigentlich nur von mir bekommen, weil der Zeichenstil mir so mega gut gefällt. Er ist voll und ganz mein Stil - eher Comic-mäßig und witzig.
Das war's dann aber auch schon mit dem positivem. Die Story an sich ist langatmig, nervig albern und macht wenig Sinn. Die Altersempfehlung ab 13 Jahren kann ich zwar grundsätzlich nachvollziehen bei dieser auf Humor angelegten Handlung, aber es gibt hier jede Menge sexuelle Anspielungen und sehr anzügl

Kana is a young schoolgirl who has no boyfriend, she has trouble keeping up her schoolwork, and her body has not developed as have the bodies of the other girls.

Matters become rather complicated for her when a being from another dimension (filled with goblins and the like) ends up on earth and in her class. Through the type of mixup that seems Kana's fate, she ends up in that world for a time.

Which, itself, might not be that bad except that an elven sorceress who has been severely injured decide
The story is light, funny and goofy, except when the very creepy bad guys show up. This blend of serious violence and fan-service-heavy comedy seemed like an odd blend, but it was still fun.
The story seemed to draw on a variety of manga cliches, ranging from sexy cat-girls [okay, technically she's a nymph:] to shape-changing-due-to-plot-device. In this case, the main character's body changes shape when she blushes...and changing in either direction is a major enough change to give her reason to

I tried to read more manga from non-Japanese authors. Well this one was interesting as far as the plot is concerned I never read anything quite like it. However I have a big problem with the art, even if I thought it was very good, why so much nudity and the need to emphasize on a lady's bosom ? I was also shocked by Salome's clothing... or lack of... Ho and the stupidity of some characters was just annoying like Kana or Tristan's. ...more

was so bored reading this. i really had to try hard to read it. totally geared for guys with all of the big boobs, girls running around pratically naked, and all of the boob and up the skirt shots. but hey, maybe that's just my interpretation. anywho- i guess it had some funny parts, but to me all of the whining was annoying. ...more

Shelves: oel-manga, fantasy
As a fan of OEL manga, I had quite a big expectations here but they weren't fulfilled. The story itself is rather uninteresting with many boring over-the-top dialogs. The art is not bad but also a bit uninteresting and dull. I was disappointed by this book. One of the worse OEL manga I've read. ...more

Really cool story! There were many clichés and a LOT of fanservice, but otherwise the story was very entertaining. The characters were quirky and you find yourself instantly engaged in the story!

If you like elves, boobs, and will love this series.

I thought it was fun, but quite a bit over-the-top.

Wow, that girl is whiny. I could only take so much before rolling my eyes, and once that happened, it was a constant struggle not to continuously roll them.
